Outlaw Cider Company (OCC) is one of the not-so-many companies in Texas offering cider.  They operate from the historically-steeped city of Grapevine.  Grapevine is also the home of a handful of wineries.

When Life Gives You Apples...Make Hard Cider!

The OCC offers six-types of cider, two of which we have tried, as of today.


  • (1) 12 Fl Oz Blackberry Can
  • (1) 12 Fl Oz Pineapple Crush Bottle


The Blackberry is a reddish purple in color and comprised of hard cider and blackberry.  The aroma is faintly blackberry.  We weren't sure whether we would like it or not, as a blackberry generally will not be found on our shopping list unless it finds its way there.
But, it's slightly sweet, like candy.  We could seriously get hooked. But, we won't.  The cidery isn't real close to Fort Worth, for our comfort.

Pineapple Crush

Pineapple Crush is honey-yellow in hue and comprised of hard apple cider, pineapple juice concentrate, natural pineapple flavor and a bit of lime juice concentrate.  The aroma is mostly pineapple and the taste is pineapple-forward.

Smooth finish!

Texas resident's will find Outlaw Cider Company products from this list here.

Caring For The Carer: How To Put Your Well-Being First

In modern life, it can often feel like we’re drowning in responsibilities - our careers, homes to fun, friends to comfort and council, family to care for - the list never ends. And unfortunately? At the very bottom of this long list comes someone else: you. Yet if you do get into the trap of always putting your own well-being last, it can be toxic. Who cares for the carer?

Our well-being can go in cycles over the course of the year, we have times when there are extra stress factors, negative experiences, health worries and more. But if we constantly push these things to one side, they can build up and ultimately cause mental and physical damage. Before you know it, you have ongoing conditions to manage, like migraines, back pain or chronic indigestion and are looking up medicare prescription plans. Your health and well-being is the most valuable asset you have, so learning how to take care of yourself is something you owe to yourself and those who depend on you.

Slow It Down

Caring For The Carer
Have you ever heard the saying ‘stop and smell the roses’? Well, there is a real value in this gentle epithet, especially in our fast-paced, twenty four hour culture. Consciously slow it down. Develop little rituals that allow you to be in the moment rather than constantly running over mental to-do lists and that are good for your spirit. It could be sitting outside to drink a morning cup of coffee, booking in a monthly appointment for a massage or taking a walk at lunchtime. Make it a priority, because although it seems minor, things like this are the basis of mindfulness and can really help you to maintain balance in your life. Stop to acknowledge the existence of these small positives in your day. In turn that will help to gently reduce stress, provide a respite from any difficulties you’re facing and give your confidence a little boost. Well worth taking half an hour for!

Know Your Value

By always putting ourselves last, we’re constantly sending a subliminal message to ourselves that we don't have value. Without value, our self-esteem is low, and that can lead to a range of harmful effects such as emotional over-eating. Don't be too self-critical, either. While it's good to want to improve ourselves, we are often guilty of a very negative self commentary that actually holds us back from achieving things. Instead, speak to yourself as you would a friend. Allow yourself mistakes as a natural part of the learning process.

Talk To Someone

Sometimes you just need to offload to someone who won't make judgments. If you don't have a good friend, then professional counselling is an option should you need it. A trained professional can help you work through problems and turn things into positives for you.  Behavior change can lead to great strength with a bit of professional guidance. It shouldn't just be reserved for when you're in crisis - it can simply help if you feel stuck in a rut or


Become a Medical Intuitive. Tina M. Zion

5 of 5 stars

Just one excellent stand-out about this book is that it is the only one which provides a training manual for the medical-intuitive-to-be. As a fellow medical intuitive, it offers more insight into what has been a natural inclination, as of the past few years. It's like someone taking a thought from your head and painting it perfectly.

Become a Medical IntuitiveAlso offered up are the ethics involved. If you wish to do this type of work, you need to know the five points given. Very important.

What we most like about the book is that there is no fluff. It's all just straight up, good advice. Smart.


Do not surprise a person by giving them intuitive information that they did not ask for.

Medical intuition is an art that can be learned and then polished into precision.

Money is simply a symbol of energy movement and a measurement of both our ability to give and our ability to receive.

Audew Cordless Hand Held Air Compressor

This is a real neat car gadget to have.  It's easy to work it and does what's it's supposed to do.  Charge it up (you have two ways to do that: Use the USB cable or the cigarette adapter cable).  The status light changes from red to blue, if you use the USB cable.  Press the middle button on the LED display screen (that thing with the red ring around it in the accompanying photo), figure out which pressure format to employee and set that.  Pull the trigger and watch out.  It is a powerful loud!
